Poland are due to take on Finland in the southwestern city of Wrocław on March 27 and then play Ukraine at a revamped Silesian Stadium in Chorzów, in the country’s south, on March 31.
Both matches will be played without spectators, Maciej Sawicki, secretary-general of the Polish Football Association (PZPN), the national governing body for the sport, said on Tuesday, as cited by public broadcaster Polish Radio’s IAR news agency.
He added that both games would be broadcast free-to-air by Polish state television TVP.
The Polish team is scheduled to play a total of four friendly matches on home turf ahead of this year’s European championships.
Poland will play Russia at the National Stadium in Warsaw on June 2 and face off against Iceland in the western city of Poznań a week later.
Poland’s Sports Minister Danuta Dmowska-Andrzejuk said last week that the upcoming matches of the national football team would take place “in accordance with the agreed dates.”
